  • Peperempe April 28, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Look at Sanusi’s shoes! Dang!!! I hope all these young Lagos wannabes ( Chidi Mokeme, MAI and co ) are watching! This is how a man dresses.

    By the way how is Blake Lively one of the 100 most influential people in the world???

  • Mrs M April 28, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Thats a dapper suit. & those shoes are really nice. The shirt isn’t fitted well though (before una chop me raw, check the neck in picture 2) it looks like it was just bought off the shelf and not fitted. A quick visit for a made to measure shirt at Zegna or Armani will sort that out. LOL…nice one sanusi.

    • Miss Face April 29, 2011 at 12:09 am

      Yes hot and old! But wait o how does she qualify to be chosen as one of the most 100 influential people in the world?Like what are her achievements? One of the most influential on gossip girl, but definitely, certainly not the world.And again, why does she look sooooo old?
